Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Raunchiest Lovelight

i finally got around to listening to some of the selections from the Taper's Section this morning and the Lovelight from 12/20/69 is downright dirty. i'd love to hear a version where they take it even further into the gutter.

any nominees for the raunchiest Lovelight?

Pig Pen only please.

Yep - that 12/20/69 Lovelight is as over-the-top raunchy as I've heard. "F*** her til her legs turn red!"

11/6/70 is another raunchy one, a little more suggestive than graphic. There's this wild rap that starts off with "Pigpen...tell 'em about the bear." Choice lines from the rap include "did I mention...he's *haaiirrrry*", and "...pie sittin' on the windowsill...Well, that ain't the kind of pie he's lookin' for."

That was the line that really struck me as raunchy.

The ones where Pig suggests "say ma'm..lets fu*k" on the 6/13/70 and 9/19/70 Lovelights

One of the greatest if you have the show since you can't stream it here is 7/12/69 in Flushing Meadows Queens where Pig does this long "speak into the microphone" and "let Mickey sing" raps. A crazy crazy Lovelight.

I love the Janice/pig Lovelight as well, has to be right up there with the best of the raunchy in my opinion. "often after a hard night of drinkin and singin Pig and Janice would retire up to Pigs room and all you would hear was gruntin and groanin all night ,much to the chagrin of the other occupants" While this is not a verbatim quote you can certainly get the gist of it!!! PURE LOVELIGHT!!!!

1/10/70 has a gritty, greasy, nasty groover of a lovelight. the first couple of minutes are average, but after the "box back knitties" line the band is unstoppable and just keeps chugging along full steam ahead despite poor pig's pleas to "wait a minute you guys". raunchy, funky, machine-eating biker blues at it's best. the amazing thing is that people in the audience were sitting down for this shit! even during the final rave-up ending pig is still telling people to get out of their seats. wtf?!?!
